There's a rumour saying that in the 5th edition rules, the Power Fist will not grant a second attack for being armed with two close combat weapons (Huron would always attack with his original attacks, as he cant use his power weapon and, say, a bolt bistol)
If this is true, will it affect the way you're using them? Will you consider the Power Sword as a valid alternative as it gives the user an additional attack when paired with the bolt pistol.

I think most people will still use it due to the fact it can still insta kill models and crak armour if need be. Loseing one attack wont effect the weapon that much. Just my thoughts on what ive seen people say about this rumoured rule
Pesonaly I'll continue to use them on my AC's. It still doubles the strengh and is a power wepon. So ok, maybe it isnt the no brainer it was before but hey it can still wound monstrous creatures and insta kill t4 so I'm happy

I'd consider PWR swords just to save points. On units such as raptors and chosen, it certainly makes lightning claws a valid option as you dont lost the attack and have a reroll to wound. I've also heard that infantry assaulting vehicles will hit the rear armour in 5th so we shouldn't really need the strength of the fist as all our models have krak grenades.
I certainly know that with my IG, a priest with an eviscerator suddenly becomes much more attractive than a commissar with a powerfist and a laspistol!
But that wont help you guys much...

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
I will certainly be keeping the power fists. For one thing, I can't be bothered to make a whole load of new AC's! But game-wise, being able to take down dreads and whatnot that assault you is invaluable. yes we've got krak grenades, but they're not actually very good. I've taken a dread down ONCE with them. once. Plus if you're assaulted by a wraithlord or an AV13 walker (the soulgrinder comes to mind) you don't stand a chance without the fist. It's too useful for what it does, and if you want that extra attack badly, take MoK.
If I've replied, i've probably used Italics...
